Getting Approval for a Fence

Installing a new fence on your property is an exciting project, but can sometimes be a headache. Getting approval for a fence from all the governing bodies can be a hassle. You may not know where to start or even what questions to ask, but we want to make the process easier for you.

While Conyers Fence Company is familiar with the codes for the areas we serve, it is up to our customers to get the approval for the fence they would like installed as the county zoning, city requirements, and bylaws of HOAs are specific to each of our customers.

HOA Approval

If you live in a neighborhood with an HOA, you will also want to check with them about any specific requirements they have for fences. Some neighborhoods require an ornamental fence for road frontage or require wood fencing only. Each HOA is different, so it is always best to check with them to make sure the fence you want will not conflict with their bylaws or covenants.

What do I even ask these people?

Common questions you would want to get clarification on might include:

What is my property zoned for? (i.e. residential or commercial)

Are there any stipulations on

  • outside storage?

  • where I can put a fence?

  • how tall my fence can be?

  • the material of the fence?

  • what is visible from the road?

Can I have windscreen, plastic slats or barbed wire?

Can I have a product taller than 6' tall?
